In the Master's degree programme Aerospace Technologies at the Hochschule Bremen, you will first deepen the scientific and technical knowledge you acquired from your Bachelor's degree. Your studies will then train you to be a highly specialised expert in the fields of aircraft construction, aerodynamics, spacecraft construction or space propulsion through advanced elective and compulsory elective modules. 

 

Career prospects

The consecutive Master's programme in Aerospace Technologies prepares you for the different requirements of potential employers in the industrial and public sectors. Above all, you are a sought-after specialist for activities in the areas of research, development, design and simulation. 

Potential career sectors:  

  • Aerospace industry 
  • Automotive industry 
  • Shipbuilding 
  • Power engineering 
  • Engineering consultancy 
  • Public authorities 
  • Research institutes 
  • Higher education 

As a graduate of the programme, you will also have the opportunity to study for a doctorate. 

Programme structure

The degree programme is divided into three sections: 

  • 1st semester: In-depth study of fundamentals and methods 
  • 2nd semester: Specialisation in aeronautics or astronautics 
  • 3rd semester: Master's thesis 

In Semester 1, you will deepen your scientific and technical foundations in the fields of mathematics, computer-aided simulation techniques and simultaneous engineering. This takes place within four compulsory modules alongside an interdisciplinary student project. 

In the second semester, you take up your specialisation in aeronautics or astronautics via two compulsory modules, two compulsory elective modules and continuation of the interdisciplinary project. Through the selected specialisation (aeronautics or astronautics) and the selected compulsory elective modules, you can design your study programme in such a way that the following options are available for specialisation and building individual profile:

  • Aircraft construction 
  • Aerodynamics 
  • Spacecraft construction 
  • Space Propulsion 

In accordance with the study structure introduced at the Hochschule Bremen, the 30 credits in the first two semesters are divided into 5 modules, each of which is taught on a weekday. This means that the programme can also be studied part-time (3-5 modules = 3-5 weekdays) – albeit over a longer period than the three semesters of full-time study.

Internationality

In order to take into account the pronounced international working environment in the field of aerospace, as well as to facilitate access to the Master’s programme for international students and enable access to the programme for applicants with limited English language skills, the first semester is taught in German and the second and third in English.
